lands? my history of the area is i had a girlfriend lived in the area about 21 years ago. we used to take the 71 at page and laguna and they had a nice little coffee shop there, and i used to take her there, so you're so familiar with the area, more intimately than just being a cabdriver. the issue is that haight streak is a lot steeper than page. you are dealing with some steeper slope issues, if i'm not mistaken, right? the thing is that -- my question is why these people's concerns were not addressed or dealt with, or were they in your staffing reports, these concerns, about these issues when you've got this information -- why i did not hear about this? these are legitimate concerns that should have been dealt with in public comment. i think you should go back to the drawing board and ask for your traffic engineers to give you responses to these people's questions or justifications for making these types of changes. yes, taxis should be able to use this. transit first. it will help get better cab service by having the ability to use these transit lanes as well. but at the same

and running all the time. i found this incredibly useful. i could see data trends over time. in terms of long-term exposure, that was one issue we had to be aware of. the other was lethal dosage. we did not have a gamma issue. we had reports from around fukushima to understand what was going on in terms of lethal dosage. populations wanted to know -- do i need to move? do we need to evacuate? so, we had to get everybody on to the same page of understanding the actual data that was reported. " we found within the head of community was that simulation predictions are not equal to share. not everyone has the same view of what will happen in a radiological crisis. being able to develop an operating picture was the goal. what you are seeing here now is the actual data of an aerial measuring system. these are sensors in an airplane. it think of mowing the grass in the air. they are looking at the reflection in the ground. that helps us to understand how bad of a problem we have and how to communicate to the self- defense force. they are looking at the same information. it helps us to understand wha

of things further on in a set of. one of the things that is critical for us is the response of the employees and the response of the governmental agencies that we work with. we work with the fda, and on more than one occasion, i have been able to reach out to the fda on a saturday or sunday and get relief. katrina was a great example of that. actually had to close the facility in louisiana, and they immediately handle anything that we needed to do to help ourselves and the pharmacy set up a brand new pharmacy in the area that handled the medical needs. i think that is a good beginning. >> i think so, too. the vice president of global marketing and business development for the harris corp.. an international communications company that serves more than 150 companies. the principal focus is the development of wireless connectivity. >> as what tom just said, i am from harris corp., our expertise is designing, implementing, and operating complex and critical networks. we do that with federal civil programs. and we also do complex jobs such as the u.s. census. given everything i have heard, i will
think all of us in the room share the intent of the original legislation, the importance of the help the san francisco program, and i think we are proud to live in a city that has stood for universal health care. that being said, it is no surprise from my perspective, that we need to make sure that whenever legislation we move forward with insurers that employees get access to health care, but do this in a way in a difficult economy that we're not leading to a necessary job losses and layoffs. our cities economists has estimated it would be to up to 460 jobs per year being lost, and this would impact 800 companies. frankly, i want to frankly, i want to see if there is a different way for store accomplish our goals. the ordinance i have introduced eliminates the use it or lose it nature of h.r. 8's and the so- called january problem, which is what happens when an employee tries to get reimbursed for a health care need at the beginning of the year after a one-year time of money has expired. we achieved the goal in the legislation by requiring that at least a year's worth of health care
